the word paparazzi comes with all kinds of negative images. they are not the only ones with the advance of digital technology these are no longer celebrities who have something to think about. kiss is just a kiss unless you are prince william and his future queen kate middleton. they live in the public eye with cameras capturing their every single move sometimes scandalously so but with all of the technology smart phones tablets telephone lenses there are up to the minute new questions about the
9:38pm
issue of privacy where do draw the line. does ever-changing technology keep moving that line? for example and illinois businessman went to prison for taking pictures story hotel people of the fox sports host erin andrews clearly illegal what about the topless photos of the duchess of cambridge in france the publisher was fined and ordered to turn over the photos but if they were taken here in illinois it would be a different story says the privacy law professor lesley reese. to get these pictures, press reports say that photographer used a long lens about a half mile away on a public road. to
9:39pm
give you an idea of how intrusive that can be we rented a similar lance sped it up here at the merchandise mart looking down the chicago river and take a close look at wall street all the way to the lasalle street bridge you can see the intern about a quarter mile away. then we took the camera up to an outdoor patio on the 22nd floor of the tribune tower hidden from view we could easily capture folks dining on the 95th floor of the hancock tower and men and women going about their business with no one but wiser. anyone visiting the outside terrace of the tribune tower would never spot our photographer and a quarter mile away but he can snap these pictures. you can still get the picture as we do what they did to the royals from a half mile
9:40pm
away. here i am standing in front of the east bank club more than half a mile from where the camera can see me now the view is similar to the blurry topless photos of the duchess of cambridge. we moved two blocks closer to two wells in illinois and this is what it looks like. >> if you are on public property, generally speaking, the photographer is clear. >> i am taking the lens and i am assuming in into somebody's home in their living room is that illegal or not? >> generally it's not illegal under the law, it would be the same thing if you were walking by someone's home and they were doing something e. legal or perhaps questionable or dressed scantily. if you can view it from the public way, there is
9:41pm
no expectation of privacy the courts would say. this is some wiggle room. it is against a lot to take pictures and restrooms tanning salons and changing rooms hotel bedrooms locker rooms and looking up someone's clothing and then minicams as long as you were not recorded audio in illinois you are most likely ok chicago cops can use surveillance cameras to catch crooks and businesses to as long as employees know it's part of company policy even homeowners set up cameras for their safety which can be a good thing in this case a home camera helped lead to the arrest of a child stocker. celebrities behaving badly are a cellphone click away there is even an act that led to stream video live so we decided to set up this experiment here in the studio as you watch me think about this,
9:42pm
who is watching you right now? you too could be recorded in your home office or even a neighborhood park. the people in the park walking their dog think they have some sort of right to privacy they don't know that you are broadcasting this. from an invasion of privacy standard it would be totally legal because it is a public setting. change that dog park to the playground. from a privacy perspective again that is legal even with kids, it's not an invasion of privacy it could be something else but it's not an invasion of privacy. technology is outpacing the law. one final caveat, if you wanted see the recorded conversation you are having had
9:43pm
to wisconsin, you cannot do that in illinois. a big brawl at a wedding reception and the faris bade win yesterday came at a cause. you look a little lost. yeah, i'm looking to save, but i'm not sure which policy is right for me. you should try our coverage checker. it helps you see if you have too much coverage or not enough, making it easier to get what you need.
